    I am so sorry for your loss Lynn. Don and I worked together, traveled together, worked for each other and had many good memories together. We even camped together when several families camped at Van Buren State Park, while we worked at Palisades Power House. Those were good times. Bev and I send our love.

    Don was one of the smartest journeyman electrician I have ever work for and with. We would always have fun on the job . Don taught me to be a better foreman. Thank you Don for all that you did for me and the IBEW.
